Throughout the month of May, HNL Lab Medicine, a regional leader in high-quality, innovative laboratory medicine services, announced an artwork contest for children in grades K-8. The goal of this contest was to promote awareness of the healthcare field, encourage creativity, and include a valuable connection to the community in each of HNL’s patient service centers.
 
“When we’re thinking about the future of our industry, we want the most creative and innovative minds out there. We thought the artwork contest would be a great opportunity to get the children in our communities learning about the healthcare field while using their creativity to make the connections between themselves and what a healthcare hero might look like,” said the Director of Marketing for HNL. We received so many incredible submissions that it made choosing winners difficult for the panel of judges.
 
The contest was open to children in grades kindergarten through 8th. It prompted students to imagine themselves as healthcare heroes like doctors, nurses, EMTs, pathologists, phlebotomists, laboratory scientists, and physical therapists. The winners will be offered the opportunity to select between a family four-pack to the Crayola Experience in Easton or tickets to the Da Vinci Science Center in Allentown.
 
The inaugural contest winners are:
 
Grades K-2
  • Theodore Zink, Kindergarten, At the Doctor’s Office
  • Lilly Gunkle, Grade 2, HNL Superhero
  • Avaline Curtright, Grade 1, I Love the People
Grades 3-5
  • Abigail Fabian, Grade 4, The Doctor that Changed the World
  • Aitrus Curtright, Grade 3, Here to Help!
  • Ediyaxiel Caraballo Cerda, Grade 4, Lifesaving Surgeon
  • Logan Byrd, Grade 4, The Cell Scientist
  • Nathan Maxwell, Grade 4, The Vaccine Process
Grades 6-8
  • Rachel Ramos, Grade 7, Doctor’s Assistant
 
In April, two HNL Lab Medicine employees were recognized by the Lehigh Valley Business Healthcare Heroes awards program. Elizabeth (Beth) Page won the COVID-19 Hero award for her tremendous composure, organization, and compassion throughout the pandemic. Sarah (Cathy) Leffler received the Lifetime Achievement Hero award for her more than 16 years as a Senior Histotechnologist, as well as her dedication to her team and patients. HNL encourages children in the region to follow in the footsteps of these healthcare heroes.
